Film Screening of "Oro Macht Frei"

Thank you to our promotional partner: Centro Primo Levi

Sunday, August 14, 4:30PM

Join us Tisha B’ab day for a screening of Oro Macht Frei featured in last year’s New York Sephardic Film Festival. Oro Macht Frei tells the story of the 9 month Nazi occupation of Rome (Sept 8, 1943 - June 4, 1944) through testimony, scholarship and archival footage. The film also examines the period of Mussolini's Racial Laws (1938-1945) as well as the Catholic Church's response to the round-up of the Roman Jews.
